Using this application, you can copy the songs from M3U or WPL playlists


Playlist copier is a pretty small but very useful application to save your time. Playlist copier copies the songs in your playlist to the folder specified by you. This saves your time to search your favorite songs and store them at a particular location.

Currently only M3U (created using Winamp) and WPL (created using Windows Media Player) playlists are supported by the application.

Using this application requires .NET Framework 2.0 installed. Using the application is very simple.

  1. You need to first open the playlist which can be M3U or WPL extension
  2. Select the songs from the Grid that you want to copy
  3. Specify the destination folder
  4. Save the songs to the folder


The idea behind this application comes from my friend's (Rohan's) brain.

Using the Code

This application code uses File Handling API and XML API. It uses File Handling API to read the M3U playlist and XML API to read the WPL playlist.

Using the code is very simple and systematic with the necessary comments in place.

The code also used components for browsing the destination folder.


The update on 2007-07-26 makes using the application more user friendly and allows the user to choose the songs which are to be copied from the playlist.

Any constructive suggestions are appreciated. You can mail me at for any queries or suggestions.
